The WORLD CADDIE HQ-PCA Association & The Golf Scene Tee Off together with education like never before in the history of golf with a product which will be of  great benefit to golfers of all abilities and especially for anyone wanting to Caddie either professionally or in their spare time

From Scotland, the ‘Home of Golf’, Golf Scene Ltd, has recently formed a partnership with the USA Florida based Professional Caddies Association ( PCA ) to produce a new PCA Caddies Training Manual.

This will be developed into a unique interactive DVD-ROM containing the whole of the existing manual together with interactive elements from The Golf Scene. The result will be a very comprehensive manual covering all aspects of caddying and course management.

The subject matter is huge and in addition to the general caddying procedures other topics include the history of caddies, course management, putting, caddie tips, psychology, health and first aid.

Dennis Cone, Founder and CEO of the PCA said, “ We have watched Golf Scene Ltd ( GSL ) grow and the Board felt GSL and their great content would complement the PCA material to help the kids and the game.  George and his team are true professionals who care passionately about the game and its history and want to help teach Life & Social skills through sports and the game of golf”

George Cocker Managing Director of Golf Scene Ltd says “ we are very pleased to be associated with the PCA and to work with them to produce their new Interactive Training program which incorporates elements from The Golf Scene. The Golf Scene is widely recognized as being an excellent program for golfers, especially beginners and juniors as it covers all aspects of golf from tuition & fitness to competitions and R&E. The interactive quiz from the Rules & Etiquette section takes an unusual approach has been widely acclaimed and is now in use in several countries. We have recently produced a DVD teaching package specifically for Golf Pros to use and the feedback from this has been excellent.”

The resources of The Golf Scene - the Ultimate Interactive Reference - can be adapted to fit in with the requirements of organisations and golf schools. The PCA and LA based Total Golf Adventures are good example of this, Golf Scene Ltd is working with them in a number of ways.(more at www.thegolfscene.co.uk).
